Saturday Challenge - Recycling & Sketch Saturday #37


This sketch appealed to me immediately and I decided to combine it with the Recycling challenge from the Saturday Challenge.

Some time ago I did quite a bit of accompanying students for instrumental exams. Often the copies had awkward page turns, so rather than chance making a mess of turning the page, I would photocopy the odd page and add it to the book to avoid having to turn over. I kept the odd photocopied pages when I handed the books back to the students and here they are appearing again. How's that for recycling?

The other recycled elements are the symbols in the corners. They were given to me by a friend who rescued them from her husband's birthday cake!

This was fun!

The flower is a Sizzix die with my favourite splat centre.
